Another one of my Stephen Crane poems from “Black Riders and Other Lines” translated into comic strip form.  You can see some more of ‘em here.

Traditionally, I haven’t done too much funny animal stuff, but this duck started showing up in my sketchbook.  Or, rather, I thought it was a duck, but then my cartoonist pal Jeff Lok, who knows more about drawing funny animals than I ever will, pointed out that it was not a duck, but, in fact, a platypus.  Which makes sense, as I was covertly informing my own work and not letting my right hand know what my left hand was doing being that I had already considered the platypus earlier in the same sketchbook.  It was only a matter of time before the platypus and Peter Lorre started hanging out together, which you also see in my previous post.  I don’t have a name for this platypus character.  Any suggestions?

  • For reasons murky to me, Peter Lorre has started creeping into my sketchbook pages as an ongoing character. It all started with drawing a face with no plan in mind when it dawned on me that I’d done a caricature of Lorre, and my pal Brandon Elston, who was visiting and also sketching that day in White River Junction, VT said, “Oh yeah, that reads as Lorre from across the room.”  Then it just sort of went from there.

Revisiting another reject: this one didn’t make the cut for one of those comics artists redoing comic book covers by other artists blogs.

"Surfing the Seas of Booze."  Here’s one that was accepted by the editor, but ultimately rejected by the publisher for a book of barf humor.  The demographic was considered to be kids, and the publisher, apparently disdaining a big chunk of comics and animation history, decided that booze humor is not for kids.
